    More Information:

    This image faces page iii in Volume I of the History of the Indian Tribes of North America, generally regarded as one of the most important works ever published on the American Indians. The Sauks (Sacs) and Foxes are generally always mentioned together, as the language they spoke was identical. These Indian tribes are from the Great Lakes area near Lake Huron. In the early days, the French drove them out of that area to the Wisconsin Territory where they settled near the Fox and Wolf Rivers. Fine, light water stains and foxing does not affect image.
